        1682 Absalom & Achitophel John Dryden English Poetry Political Satire Charles II

      London Printed for J.T [Jacob Tonson]., and are to be sold by [W. Davis, 1682.] ‘The Second Edition; Augmented and Revised’ - 1682 Absalom & Achitophel John Dryden English Poetry Political Satire Charles II “But far more numerous was the herd of such, Who think too little, and who talk too much.” John Dryden, Absalom and Achitophel John Dryden was a 17th-century English poet who was known as England’s very first Poet Laureate and would lead England into a literary period that would become known as the Age of Dryden. He also established standard forms of English poetry though his satires, fables, epigrams, poems, and plays. “Absaom and Achitophel” was a satirical poem by Dryden first published in 1681 and follows the standard meter than Druden established as the norm. This allegorical poem follows the Biblical story of Absalom’s rebellion from King David, but represents Charles II and the Exclusion Crisis, the Popish Plot, and the Monmouth Rebellion. This short work is considered as “the finest political satire in the English language” by the Cambridge Guide to English Literature. This example is a second edition, even though the dating has been cut-off, the edition is stated on the title page.

      Acta Eruditorum, 1682+1683. - Leipzig, Grossium & Gleditsch, 1682, 4, (10), 402, (6) pp., 21 Kupferstichtafeln 1683, 4, (8), 561, (7) pp., 14 Kupferstichtafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit. First Edition !I. De vera proportione circuli ad quadratum circumscriptum in numeris rationalibus. Mit Kupfertafel. (1682: pp.41-46).This was Leibniz first article published in Acta Eruditorum He deals with mensuration and describes the Leibniz series 1-1/3+1/5-1/7...=pi/4.II. Unicum opticae, catoptricae et dioptricae principium. Mit Kupfertafel. (1682: pp.185-190).Leibniz hinted at the derivation of the law of refraction by means of extreme value methods. He names p.186 his method: "methodo de maximus et minimis" not jet published. "Auch Leibniz lehnte die Descartessche Ableitung mit ihren Voraussetzungen ab und wandte ebenfalls das Heronsche Prinzip an, verstand aber unter Kraftaufwand eine Arbeitsleistung. Damit war das Brechnungsgesetz endgültig festgestellt, unabhängig von den Voraussetzungen über das Wesen des Lichts" Hoppe, Geschichte der Optik, p.35 vgl. DSB VIII, pp.156 ff.III. Meditatio de separatione salis et aquae dulcis, novoque separationum chymicarum genere. (1682: pp.386-388). Leibniz publishes in the Acta Eruditorum a short "Meditatio de Separatione Salis et aquae dulcis, novoque Separationum Chymicarum genere [Meditation on the Separation of Salt and Fresh Water, and on the Genus of Chemical Separations]." Considering this treatise's appearance shortly after the work on phosphorus and the one on the 'spiritus ardens', and considering that these appear at a time when we know Leibniz was working on the animal-economical texts that will be studied in the following chapter, we may say that the early 1680s mark a high point in both Leibniz's chemical and physiological interests. We may also conjecture that he saw the two domains of inquiry as deeply interwoven, even inseparable: there is, Leibniz believed, an application for chemistry in the study of animal bodies. Animal economy considers these bodies qua structures chemistry studies them as masses. The fact that the raw material for some of the most important chemical experiments of Leibniz's day came directly from the animal or human body-for example, the use of urine for the production of phosphorus-further shows how difficult it would have been for Leibniz and his contemporaries to make a firm distinction between chemistry as the study of all sorts of mixtures, on the one hand, and on the other what we call "biology." Justin E.H. Smith, Divine Machines (2011), p.30IV. Meditatio juridico-mathematica de interusurio simplice. (1683: pp.425-432) . Mathematik, Statistik und Versicherung - "Auch selbst hat sich Leibniz eingehend mit Fragen der Versicherungsmathematik, insbesondere des Barwertes, des Gesundheitswesens und der Statistik befaßt. Er forderte die jährliche Veröffentlichung von Geburts- und Sterbelisten im Interesse des Ausbaus der Personenversicherung. Außerdem dachte er an eine "Reservekasse als Nothpfennig für Witwen und Waisen", wofür jedem Beamten von seiner Besoldung jeweils ein bestimmter Betrag abgezogen werden sollte, um die Hinterbliebenen vor dem äußersten Ruin und Armut nach dem Tode des Ernährers zu schützen. Dem weiteren Fortschritt des Versicherungswesens kam schließlich außer der Erfindung seiner Rechenmaschine die Entwicklung der Zinseszinsrechnung zu statten, die er 1683 in der damaligen Gelehrtenzeitschrift "Acta Eruditorum" veröffentlichte." Peter Koch, Geschichte der Versicherungswissenschaft in Deutschland: Aus Anlass seiner .. (1998), pp.61-62 "A detailed legal and economic apologia for the principle of discounting with compound interest is to be found for the first time in the works of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 1682. He shows that the calculation of capital values follows from three self-evident legal maxims for the premature redemption of a debt. Compound interest is a result of the reinvestment of money released from an investment. And that is why the discussion on whether compound interest is usury was bound to lead to the discovery of the reinvestment premises in investment accounting procedures." Hans Pohl & Bernd Rudolph (Ed.): German Yearbook on Business History 1985, p.32Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz's (1646-1716) Hannover) appointment in the Hanoverian service gave him more time for his favourite pursuits. He used to assert that as the first-fruit of his increased leisure, he invented the differential and integral calculus in 1674, but the earliest traces of the use of it in his extant note-books do not occur till 1675, and it was not till 1677 that we find it developed into a consistent system it was not published till 1684. Most of his mathematical papers were produced within the ten years from 1682 to 1692, and many of them in a journal, called the Acta Eruditorum, founded by himself and Otto Mencke in 1682, which had a wide circulation on the continent.He was one of the true geniuses of modern history. Although his contributions to the development of differential calculus remain his greatest legacy, his definition of identity and his work in establishing a formal notation for all mathematics provided the foundation for others like Peano nearly two hundred years later.Further items of special interest are Robert Boyle: Noctiluca aerea, seu nova quaedam phaenomena & processus substantiae artificialis per se lucentis.

      "Geb., 19de-eeuws halflinnen, (6)+296+40+(16) p., ill. Lit: Tiele 200; Jacobsen Jensen 65."."Tweede Nederlandse druk (eerste: 1682) van het beroemde reisboek van de Engelse medicus Brown (1642-1708), die in de jaren 1668-1673 door Europa reisde. De oorspronkelijke Engelse uitgave was van 1673 en 1677. Brown arriveerde in 1668 in Rotterdam en bezocht daarna in ons land (p. 2-46): Delft, ‘s Gravenhage, Leiden, Haarlem, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Vianen, Gorinchem, Loevestein, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Breda, Geertruidenberg, Dordrecht, Veere, Middelburg en Vlissingen. Via Brussel komt hij dan te Maastricht en Wijk en reist dan verder naar Duitsland. Later op de reis komt hij nogmaals te Maastricht (p. 289-290), waar hij uitvoerig de St.-Pietersberg beschrijft. Het boek heeft behalve een titelprent nog 16, grotendeels uitvouwbare gravures, veelal van de hand van Jan Luyken. Een van deze prenten betreft ons land: het interieur van de St.-Pietersberg. Hier en daar blijkt uit de tekst zijn medische belangstelling. Zo deelt hij bij de beschrijving van Amsterdam een en ander mee over de techniek van het besnijden van joodse jongens: `De goede vrienden en bekenden singen onderwijlen, waardoor men het krijten en schreeuwen van ‘t kind te minder hoord.'"

Landwehr, Low Countries, 680 (for the identical Brussels Foppens edition of 1683). Praz II, p.168-69. First of the Brussels Foppens editions of Veen's enduringly popular "Emblems from Horace" (principally from the Odes and Satires), a classic of the emblematic literature, originally published, in Antwerp, in 1607, then reprinted in numerous editions with polyglot text, ensuring it a Europe-wide readership. Van Veen was among the most important Dutch emblematists of the 17th-century, as well as Antwerp's leading artist and dean of the painters' guild of St. Luke. Peter Paul Rubens entered his studio, in 1594 or 1595, as an apprentice, and Veen's role as a classically educated humanist artist (a pictor doctus) influenced Rubens deeply. N. B.

Bossuet en fit un livre, celui-ci et le pasteur ne tarda pas à lui répondre. Quand à Marie de Duras, elle abjura sa foi et se convertit à l'église catholique.

        [John Sturges in Turkish costume with turban and gold-trimmed coat].Peterborough, 1739. Pastel on paper, mounted on canvas (41 x 30.5 cm), stretched over (original?) wooden board.

      Jeffares, "John Saunders 1682-p. 1758", in: Dictionary of pastellists before 1800 (online ed.). A pastel portrait drawn by the prolific itinerant portraitist John Saunders (1682-ca.1758) at Peterborough in September 1739. Saunders is recorded as active in East Anglia, the Midlands and elsewhere in the mid-18th century. The sitter John Sturges appears in Turkish costume, wearing a white turban with blue feather and a coat with gold trimmings and a fur collar. Saunders probably based it on a 1733 mezzotint drawn and engraved by Francis Kyte (d. 1744) after a painting (or the ink-wash drawing noted below?) by John Vanderbank (1694-1739). The pastel is of interest as an example of mid-18th century depiction of Turkish costume.With a paper label on the back with a manuscript note repeating information from the autograph pencil inscription by Saunders on the front, top right: "Saunders pinxit after Mr. J[oh]n Vanderbank Peterborough Sept. anno d. 1739". Two negligible scratches to surface, otherwise in good condition.

      Lipsiae [Leipzig], J. Gross & J. F. Gleditsch, 1682-1692. Twelve volumes in seven. 4to (20.0 x 16.0 cm). Over 7,150 pp., 162 (of 164) engraved plates of which many are large, folded, numerous text engravings. Original half vellum over speckled boards (1684), or full vellum (all other volumes). Near uniform script title on the spines. Edges red.l The Acta Eruditorum (Reports of scholars) was the first scientific journal of the German world. Arguably the most important scientific journal of its time, with all the major discoveries in physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, biology medicine and history, it was widely read throughout the scientific world, being written in Latin. The Acta eruditorum was founded in Leipzig in 1682 (the present set thus is the rare start, including the first volume). Founders and first editors were Otto Mencke, and Gottfried Leibniz. Like the English 'Philosophical Transactions' and the French 'Journal des Savants', the 'Acta Eruditorum' contained excerpts from new writings (often letters, circulating among scientists), reviews, and original contributions. Some of the foremost scientists of their time made regular contributions. In particular Leibniz, and Jakob and Johan Bernoulli, published their important mathematical contributions in here. Leibniz published 36 articles in these volumes of the Acta Eruditorum, perhaps the most important being his work on integral calculus "De Geometria recondita et Analysi Indivisibilium atque infinitorum,.." in 1686, described in more detail below. The 1684 volume contains Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is now known that four distinct issues exist, and this issue was unrecorded until recent. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but was recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state and can therefore not be a late issue. Interestingly, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. It is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, certainly possible that this is the true first issue, we can think of little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate in a later stadium. All plates in the 1684 volume have the month added, no other copies with this feature have been found. The 1684 volume in a very good copy in unusually crisp and clean condition, and in an attractive contemporary binding. In volume 5 (1686) Leibniz introduces his important integral calculus in “De geometria recondita et analysis indivisibilium atque infinitorum”. Apart from these most famous articles by Leibniz, there are dozens of other articles by Leibniz and also by other famous scientists like the Bernoullis and Huygens. The articles and plates in this set illustrate the progress of science in many fields of knowledge: not only mathematics, but also human anatomy, natural history, alchemistry, astronomy, botany, mining, and archaeology, to name just a few. Of particular interest is the first description of a steam engine, by the French mathematician and inventor, Denis Papin (1647-1712) in the 1690 volume (pp. 410-41, and a plate). Two plates, 1688, plate X (to anothe Papin paper), and 1689 plate XV (to Valvasor's publication on the Cerkniško jezero lake) lacking. Old library stamp on verso of title pages, removed paste on front pastedown. Some light uniform age toning as usual for this sort of paper and a few pages browned. In the 1686 volume the September issue ha a red wine stain covering various parts of text, but not effecting readability. The fine plate of Saturn and its moons is unaffected. A paper repair with loss of a few letters in the 1686 volume, pp. 325-326 (review of a German language thesis). The years 1692-1693 without preliminary (dedication) pages, most probably not issued. The years 1682-1683, 1686-1687, 1688-1699, 1690-1691, and 1692-1693 bound paired; 1684, and 1685 bound separately. All volumes with an old library stamp on the verso of the title pages. Overall this is a very good set in unusually crisp and clean condition and in attractive original bindings. Norman 1326; Dibner, Heralds of science 109; Ravier, Biblio. de Leibnitz, 84-96, 101-104 and 195-214; PMM, 160.

        Emblemata Amatoria. Emblemes d'Amour en Quatre Langue

      London: "Chez L'Amoureaux" [circa 1682]. 8vo (140 x 95 mm). Engraved throughout. Engraved title, sonnet in French, frontispiece, sonnet in Dutch, 44 engraved plates by Jan van Vianen, each facing text in Latin, Italian, French and Dutch, each printed on one side only. Early 18th-century vellum. Provenance: C.J.M. Kauscol (inscription on flyleaf); William Charles Smith (bookplate, 1882 gift inscription from "F.R.S."). Although the imprint is given as London (Londre), this edition appears to predate that of Ayres of 1683, as Landwehr claims. The engravings are much more finely executed, with greater detail. At least five editions were issued between 1683 and 1714 in London by Philip Ayres. These were based on the love emblems of Crispyn de Passe, Otto Vaenius, Heinsius, and Thronus Cupidinus. The Dutch artist Jan van Vianen went to England in his youth and, according to Praz, reworked his plates (in the reverse) from the originals, adding better perspective than in the originals. Landwehr, Emblem and fable books, 216; Praz, pp. 127-131 & 323; De Vries, Emblemata 232 & p. 43. Plate 20 and text 21 mounted back-to-back, some pale browning, vellum somewhat soiled.
